The 2012 field season demonstrated the successful application of multifaceted, field based work programs in locating sulphide mineralization at or near surface. Numerous geochemical and geophysical targets remain to be tested in 2013.

Jon Findlay, Ph.D., P.Geo is the designated Qualified Person for this project.

About the MAN Property

The MAN project targets Nickel (Ni) – Copper (Cu) – Platinum Group Element (PGE) mineralization in a series of mafic-ultramafic complexes located approximately 260 km southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska. Four such complexes are present on the property, Alpha, Beta, Canwell and Rainy. Sulphide showings on the property have returned extremely high metal concentrations in grab samples, including 2.0% Ni, 1.3% Cu and 2.4 g/t Au+Pt+Pd from the East Rainy showing, 1.39% Ni, 0.48% Cu and 4.0 g/t Au+Pt+Pd from the Bird's Beak showing, and 6.7% Ni, 1.0% Cu and 1.5 g/t Au+Pt+Pd from the Tres Equis showing. Pure Nickel Inc.'s work programs are currently focussed on identification of economic deposits of disseminated to massive Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide mineralization in the mafic-ultramafic complexes.

About Pure Nickel Inc.

Pure Nickel is a mineral exploration company with a diverse collection of nickel, copper and platinum group element exploration projects in North America. The Company is active on its flagship MAN property, and the Salt Chuck property in the Alaskan panhandle, where a new gold discovery was recently announced on December 11, 2012. In addition, the Company is actively pursuing other, non-nickel properties in North America and overseas.
